Grab a tissue before watching this heartwarming video from The Dodo. A kindhearted couple has made it their mission to adopt special needs cats.
Members of this loving household include a sweet guy with a neurological condition that makes it hard to walk, a cat who lost her eyes to an infection, and another cat who was born with a cleft palate.
Just when they thought their family was complete, they added a fourth cat who’s missing an eye. These sweet cats really do prove that cats are like potato chips…you just can’t stop at one!
Jacinda Ardern was sworn in as New Zealand’s new Prime Minister this week, making history as the world’s youngest female leader (she’s 37). She’s also New Zealand’s youngest Prime Minister in 150 years and the third woman to lead the country.
Ardern’s adorable polydactyl cat Paddles is now causing a stir on social media. She made her Twitter debut just a few days ago and already has thousands of followers.
For more on Paddles and other current first pets around the world, check out this BBC News article. You can follow Paddles at @FirstCatofNZ. As she says, “Have thumbs, will tweet!”
